20 Days of WoW: Race

13Dec10

Now we’re on to Day 2 of the 20 Day World of Warcraft challenge!

Favourite race and why?

I’m not really into racing… Oh, wrong context.
Weirdly enough, I feel myself actually having a harder time with this question than I do the class question.  I know it doesn’t make much sense, I can’t really explain it either, but let’s work through it.

My main is a human, a lot of my alts are human, my original character was human (all of my friends wanted to be humans).  This, however, is a rather boring choice in the land of a fantasy MMO.  I’m a human in real life, and while I do love my fellow man, when it comes to World of Warcraft — they simply aren’t #1. I do have my Stormwind City pride, of course, but that’s mostly due to actually playing a human than it is the humans being my favorite. 😉

I hate gnomes. They’re creepy and annoying. Seriously! I don’t know if it’s just the server I play on, but the majority of the gnomes I run into just look like very small, bald, old men.  It’s weird, I’m sorry! Dwarves have slowly begun to grow on me, perhaps due to interacting with them in D&D; their drunken fits are, honestly, quite entertaining. Orcs, trolls, and goblins (seriously, these are just GREEN small, bald men to me — creepy & annoying Edit: Since typing this post, I’ve looked into the goblins more — they’re cool :P) don’t particularly suit my fancy either. Not saying they’re terrible, but of course not my favorite!

This leaves draenei, worgen, tauren, undead, and blood elves.  Looking at these final 5 (teehee Galactica references ftw!), I can definitely narrow it down to worgen and tauren.  I’ve always loved the tauren; tauren females are absolutely adorable and both genders seem very warm-hearted.  I love their temperaments.  To me, the worgen are Alliance’s version of the beloved tauren, however since the worgen are new, I’ll exclude them.

Taurens definitely win it for me.

    The fact that gnomes only have 4 (very large) fingers creeps me out.

    I like the new Worgens and Taurens too ^^ though Humans are just fine with me as well. Changing my druid to Worgen whenever I finally buy Cata 😛

    • I know!!

      You’ll like your worgen. Even though you don’t play male toons I have to say — don’t make a male worgen. The female worgen look sooo much better!

  2. You forgot about the night elves, haha.

    The goblins are pretty ugly, but I have to admit that my little lvl 10 looks badass.

    • You’re so right… I straight up forgot about them. I guess that definitely puts them out of the running for favorite, huh? lol :b
